wedding portraits turn your images into true works of art.
A custom service of Karrie Porter Photography.

original, want a style of wedding imagery that
no one else has, or are seeking a way to
display your favorite bridal portrait that will
serve as a conversation piece in your home,
request a hand-painted piece of wedding artwork.
HOW IT WORKS
- we start with a digital photograph
- if it's one we've captured, work can begin right away
- if you are providing a professional image captured by another photographer, we'll help you procure the permissions necessary to use the image in the artwork
- you can also provide images you have captured yourself
- using a combination of tools and creative medium, we transform the photo into a real painting
- style can be photorealism to completely abstract; your choice!
YOUR BEAUTY, OUR EXPERTISE
- photographers who hand-paint their images are a rare breed
- we are the only studio in the Florida Keys that offers this service
- we have been perfecting our technique since 2003
BRUSHED TO PERFECTION
- this is not a simple "set it and forget it" computer filter
- combines traditional artist techniques with some modern digital tools
- approximately 8 to 16 hours of work goes into each piece
THE HAND BEHIND THE CURTAIN
- yes, an actual wood stem, mohair bristle brush is involved!
- yes, Karrie is the living, breathing, human who makes this happen
SO MANY WALLS, SO LITTLE TIME!
FINISHED PRODUCT CHOICES INCLUDE:
- oil on canvas
- watercolor on fine art paper
- acrylic on transparency
- collage arrangements are also available
TERMS AND TURNAROUND
- we will only accept 4 paintings per month, so depending on volume, expect to wait about 8 to 12 weeks for delivery
- because each is custom made, rush-processing is not available
- pricing is based on image complexity, painting style chosen, and finished product size, so a custom quote will be provided
- to give you a rough estimate, rates range from $300 to $800, with most clients averaging about $500 for a moderately-complex image on a 20x24 to 24x36" canvas
